  • 7 Tips for Donor Retention
    When it comes to fundraising, there’s one rule of thumb which, while undeniably important, is oft-overlooked: Make new friends but keep the old. One is silver and the other, gold.

  • #TechToolTuesday: Freedom and Anti-Social
    When I was in college I would go to other university libraries to cloister myself for most of a day. I would say it was to have stacks of research materials at my disposal (which was partly true) but in reality I did it because I was more productive without WiFi. Now that smartphones are [...]
